Single tickets to all Princeton University Concerts’ (“PUC”) 2019-20 season events are now on sale, online at princetonuniversityconcerts.org, and by phone at 609-258-2800. Prices range just $5-10 students/$25-55 general for concerts featuring some of the most revered musicians of our time. Highlights include the rare opportunity to hear Philadelphia Orchestra and Metropolitan Opera Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin at the piano in a reimagining of Schubert’s beloved song cycle Winterreise, sung by PUC-favorite mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato; jazz legend pianist Brad Mehldau alongside tenor Ian Bostridge; and the debut of the Mahler Chamber Orchestra with the inimitable Mitsuko Uchida leading from the keyboard.
Not available as part of subscription packages, the audience-favorite Performances Up Close series—hour-long concerts with audience seated onstage—is also now available for purchase. This year’s programs focus on “The Artist as Improviser,” and feature live improvisations by the Vision String Quartet, pianist Gabriela Montero, and pianist Conrad Tao with tap dancer Caleb Teicher.
In addition to presenting the greatest talent in the world for the lowest prices in town, PUC continues to expand its free programming. The Live Music Meditation series, which received international acclaim last season in features by The New York Times and Performance Today, will return with pianist Brad Mehldau, violinist Stefan Jackiw, cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras, and the Dover String Quartet. Details about these events and more – including partnerships with the Princeton Public Library and the Princeton Garden Theatre – will be announced in the fall.
Tickets will be available for purchase in person at the Frist and Lewis Arts Complex campus box offices after the start of the Princeton University academic term.
